    I need to ask a few questions - particularly about file management. Where are file copies stored? How are edited files synced with files on SD card ? Is cloud storage a part of Polaris ? Etc

    It looks like there's 100MB of cloud storage included with Polaris; you can also use Dropbox or Google Drive (at least, to import documents from; I didn't try saving a file to Dropbox).

    You can import files from the SD card but it looks like saving files to the SD card is a premium feature.

    Since I don't have the premium feature I can't tell you anything about intermediate files (where a file being edited is stored while you're working on it) - sorry.

    I've been playing with the "free" (not-the Premium version). I thought this app would provide an easy way to view and edit documents on my Nexus.

    Here is my source of confusion concerning file management:
    After I drag folders (via USB) from my PC to an N7 folder I see them in Polaris Office under "Device Storage". Some of these appear in My Storage/My Documents, and some appear in My Storage/Recent Documents. I see that I need an internet connection to view these.
    I plan to use Polaris in an "off-line" mode. Most of my activities are viewing and some editing of my Device Storage documents. No cloud sharing contemplated (for now). So I guess I should open, view, edit, and save directly from/to Device Storage, and ignore all of the other storage places. Any edits will update the Device Storage documents when I Save -- just like on my PC.

    Does this seem sensible?
